Jamaicans Encouraged To Embrace The Possibilities That Can Result From The Country’s Transition To A Digital Economy
Prime Minister Andrew Holness, is encouraging Jamaicans to embrace the possibilities that can result from the country’s transition to a digital economy.
He noted that many times booms have come in the digital global economy and we have not been able to ride them. We are now on the upswing of the digital era. Let us take advantage of it… let us not fear it.
Mr. Holness was speaking at the launch of the Companies Office of Jamaica’s (COJ) Electronic Business Registration Form (eBRF) at The Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in New Kingston last week.
He said that the Government continues to proceed in a very deliberate way with plans to integrate technology into its daily operations, in keeping with a commitment to ensuring that Jamaica leapfrogs the digital divide.
In the coming years, it will be the societies that have embraced technology and used it for innovation that will be the global leaders, the Prime Minister contended.
It is clear… that the transformation to a digital society is imminent, it is irresistible… and the faster you embrace it and get ahead of it the better the chances that you will lessen the digital divide, he added.
